I have some problems with compressing a network stream. I am kinda developing a compression proxy with the server compressing the data and then sending it to the client.

My problem is that I can't get the compression working. I have noticed that most popular methods wait for enough data to compress before sending it. As a result I can't flush the stream properly.

I have tried zlib, gzip and deflate but none are really suited for a network stream.

Some people have suggested that I look at video stream compression techniques.

Does anyone have advice on this matter ?
